    Wink HOW TO CORRECT THE SENTENCE

    I AM A TAIWANESE , I READ A PIECE OF CHURCH BULLETINE BLOOPERS

    * This afternoon there will be a meeting in the South and North ends of the church. Children will be baptized at both ends.


    ACTUALLY I UNDERSTAND THE HUMOR OF THE BULLETINE BLOOPER

    BUT COULD YOU TELL ME HOW TO CORRECT THE SECOND SENTENCE SO THAT LET IT BECOMES NOT A JOKE .

    CAN I SAY" Children will be baptized at both places"?

    Children will be baptised at both locations.
    Both ends of the church will be used for the baptism of children.

    Note: spelling of "bulletin" (no "e" at the end)
    You are not "a" Taiwanese. You just say "I am Taiwanese".

    Also, could you try not to post in capital letters please? Thanks.
